Since Timberland introduced its handsewn lug shoe in 1978, it’s been a staple in the brand’s arsenal since. Crafted using premium leathers, hand sewn uppers and a rugged lug outsole, it’s a style that effortlessly unites both fashion and utility.

For Fall/Winter 2020, Timberland has teamed up with streetwear brand Chinatown Market for a rework of the classic silhouette, inspired by the nature and powerful animals found in the savanna.

In-keeping with Timberland’s longstanding commitment to protect the environment, materials are sourced from tanneries rated silver by the Leather Working Group for their water, energy, and waste management practices.

“Genuine handsewn” construction is a traditional method of making footwear, widely recognized as a way to craft an extremely comfortable pair of shoes.Genuine handsewn uppers are shaped and fitted to a last, or footwear mold, with simple tools and then sewn and tacked together by hand on that last.

The Timberland x Chinatown Market collection features two styles — black with blue leather and black with animal print leather — both of which will be available globally from the Timberland webstore from October 13.

In other news, Palladium has launched its most sustainable styles yet for its FW20 collection.
